I apologize for disappearing off the grid for more than entire week. I was down and out for some not insignificant sinus surgery and while all is healing and progressing well, let me assure you that something like that takes a bite out of you.
But now that I have that behind me I can begin training in earnest for the Sochi Olympics (beer-wings-nachos triathlon) and I intend to be ready to go.
Laura and Chris were endlessly patient with me through the miserable ordeal and the aftermath. I am back to work now but not allowed to exercise or do anything strenuous (like there was a risk of that happening) for a couple of weeks.
Sadly one of the things I am not allowed to do is bend down and lift things – things like heavy boxes of Christmas decorations. And so I helpfully directed some festive home-decorating activity on Sunday afternoon from my perch in the family room in front of the NFL schedule.

I would like to give a nod to the people – all of the people – at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington. Perhaps I am at a stage of life where I tend to deal mostly with surly folks, but everyone at Joe Brant was relentlessly nice. It makes a big difference.
So, excuse the brevity and my absence.
I’ll be back to my old self soon. Soon-ish.
